Past memories linger, resurface, distort and blur, reconstructing themselves into a version of reality that we remember. This work is an introspective look at the different states one goes through when encountering loss, taking the viewer on a site-specific tour of an imagined house. Viewers are invited to experience a 360 perspective as they follow the dancers through the tour. This will be a 1-take performance.

ABOUT THE PROCESS
Hypnagogia is the second collaboration between Hong Guofeng and Redwan Hamzah, after a successful site- specific work, Dock 65 in 2019. This work is prompted by a reflection of the impact of this pandemic, especially on the loss of familiarity many faced. Set in a vacant colonial bungalow, the performance attempts to recreate the experience of the audience being in the space watching a site-specific performance through not just the use of a 360 camera for visuals, but incorporating 360 sound experience as well.
